How To Do Wudu” One of the etiquettes of Sufism is that they perform ablutions at all times, whether they are traveling or staying. The real reason is that it is not known when death will occur.
Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal always arranged for ablution. If they had not performed ablutions and had to go to a nearby river to perform new ablutions, they would have performed tayammum first. Fearing that they would die if they reached the river.
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The person who performs ablutions and performs ablutions in a good manner, his sins are removed from his body, even from under his fingernails.
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “On the Day of Resurrection you will be in a state where your face, hands and feet will be white and shining because of ablution. Whoever of you has power; let him increase the light of his hands, feet and face.
How To Do Wudu
There are seven limbs in ablution in which two hands, two feet, face, mouth and nose are washed and the head and ears are wiped. It has been reduced by the Lord of Glory to His servants by His special grace. Reduction because if he had ordered the washing of the whole body every time during ablution, it would have been a restriction which would not have been possible to follow.
Especially in areas where very little water is available or frequent bathing in severe cold can cause discomfort and increase the risk of illness. There is little to be thankful for in this grace of Allah. The organs that are supposed to be washed are those that are open while the rest of the body is covered. As a result, these exposed organs are constantly contaminated with dust and germs.
In the same way, it is a fact that most of the sins committed by human beings are committed through these exposed organs. Now, since these organs have to appear in the court of Allah and these organs have to participate in performing the members of the prayers at the time of prayers, it has been ordered to cleanse these organs from contaminants.
How To Make Wudu
Wudhu is a process by which the dust and germs on the external organs of the body ie hands, feet and face are expelled with water. But when it is said that water washes away even sins, it is not uncommon for questions to arise in some minds.
- Do the effects of sins and transgressions also exist on the human body?
- Does water also have intellect and ability to wash away the pollution of sins?
As far as the first question is concerned, there is no doubt that every sin has a specific contamination, the effects and marks of which are present on the organ from which that sin and sin is headed. Those signs and effects are not hidden.
A man came to the service of Hazrat Usman Ghani Before that he was looking at a non-mahram woman. When you saw him, he said that a man comes to me with the effect of adultery in his eyes the man said: Does revelation come even after the Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH)? He said: It is not revelation but intellect that believes.
Two men from Lahore attended the service of Hazrat Mian Sher Muhammad Sharqpuri. Before leaving Lahore, these two friends kept entertaining their hearts with the beauty of non-mahram women. Arriving at Sharqpur Sharif, he sat in the Majlis of Hazrat Mian Sahib with great politeness.
Hazrat Mian Sahib came and stood beside them and looking into their eyes said: What was there and what is here? That is, they did not protect their eyes from non-women there.
From the above two examples it is clear that every sin has a certain kind of pollution which has its effects on the body and it is not hidden from the eyes of the people of Allah. The water of ablution washes away even those impurities.
If water is life-giving by God’s command to revive the dead earth, will it not itself come to life? Only he who has life and intellect can give life to others.
Wudu with Imam Hanifa
Imam Azam Abo Hanifa used to look at the water and recognize whether it was a major sin or a minor sin. Once Hazrat visited a pool in Kufa where a young man was performing Wudhu.
Imam Sahib’s eyes fell on the water used by this young man and he said: My son! Repent of hurting your parents. He immediately repented before you. Similarly, seeing the water of ablution of a person, he said: Brother, repent from adultery. He also repented immediately.
